Welcome to Librarium


We are an open shop, and are here most days 12-6. We are open by appointment, or chance, and we'd be happy to have you visit the shop! An appointment is a good idea - 518-392-5209 or [email protected] but you can also find us open by chance if you are just driving by. If our open sign is on the top step and/or our “open” flag is flying then feel free to park in the driveway and come right in! The Barn is closed for the season. (It is generally open late May through October.)


If there is a particular book you are looking for, and you can't make it in for a visit, please feel free to call or e-mail us, or fill out our Off-Line Search form (also see link under 'Navigation') to take advantage of our convenient and professional search services. You can also find our books available for sale online - we have books listed here on our website, as well as a larger selection for sale via AbeBooks and Amazon and even a few on eBay.


We hope to see you soon!


Our Covid Response ~

We are more than happy to have customers these days, it’s been a long few years!


  1. Masks are no longer required of the vaccinated in our shop. All staff have been vaccinated and we are happy to have other vaccinated people in the shop, maskless.
  2. However, if you have not been vaccinated please do wear a mask and we, the staff, will also wear one while you are here and will ask anyone else who comes in to wear one as well. 
  3. There is hand sanitizer available by the door and in the rest room.
  4. If you feel unwell or have been in contact with someone who feels unwell, please schedule your visit for another time - we want to make sure you and our staff and our other customers all stay safe and healthy. 

Everyone please continue to take good care! We are really looking forward to seeing you soon!
